RIP, Jack Layton

There have been so many tributes to this remarkable man who led such a remarkable life, that I can’t add much more here. And while I have many thoughts about how much he contributed to a better Canada, in the context of this website, I picture him at Afrofest.

Frequenty there are politicians and dignitaries who show up at Afrofest and other events, speak their words and leave. I remember Jack & Olivia showing up…and hanging out.
